Yeah, I totally can see this happening if things don't pick up.
Uh you can't transfer after your first year. He could go be a visiting student though I guess.
I know someone who transferred for just her third year. Definitely transferred. She isn't going to be a visiting student.
I've taken the Bar in Georgia and Colorado.
I took Barbri in Georgia and passed.
I did not take Barbri in Colorado and passed. (I didn't remember anything and I had to take the multistate again!)
For the essay portion of the BAR EXAM, you only need to memorize the class notes from BarBri. That's all I did in Colorado. For the Multistate multiple choice, all you need to study are the BarBri class notes and the Conviser mini-review. For the MPT, you need practice tests to work on.
You definitely can get by with the materials. BUT you HAVE to have the class notes.
I'm not sure about terminology here.
When people say "Barbri class notes" are you referring to the Barbri in class workbook with the fill in the blanks? Or, just notes generally.
Define "awful." Considering most schools even in the T2 have like 90%+ people having jobs 9 months from graduation I'm sure you will get something. It just might not be that fat 6 figure job you were hoping for.
